Anyone mind explaining to me how to correctly read Realtemp?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've always wondered, Realtemp reads core 0,1,2,3. My idles are usually 29,35,36,36. The temperature that displays in the notification area is always core 0.

Anyone explain that? I don't quite understand how Realtemp works with the 2600k.

Cheers.

By taskbar, you mean notification area? You can choose which cores temps to display in settings - Notification Area Color and Font (or did I misunderstand your question?)

Ah, woops. Yeah, notification area.

But yes, how do you find your correct single CPU temperature. Since there's four cores and all four are usually displaying different temperatures.

Look at the four cores separately. The CPU temperature would just be an average.

Four cores are essentially four CPU's, so it makes more sense to just look at the temps of the cores.

uhhhh... there are 4 physical core, each with a temperature sensor...add & divide by four i guess

Four cores are essentially four CPU's, so it makes more sense to just look at the temps of the cores.

So in other words if I am understanding correctly you would find the Mean of the four numbers?

So currently..

Core 0: 29c
Core 1: 35c
Core 2: 37c
Core 3: 37c

29+35+37+37 = 138/4 = 34.5

So basically, 34.5 is my CPU idle temperature... if I'm understanding this correctly.

I wouldnt average them. Each core is each core. Sometimes you can tell which is getting better cooled or which has a stuck sensor, but they should all be within a few of each other at load. Idle temps dont mean much.

What do each say at 100% load ?

As far as I know, Realtemp only displays core temps. I think what you're looking for is IHS temps ot TJunction, which RT doesn't provide. If you want absolute clarifications, post/ask Kevin (author) over at XS maybe theres a 2600k secret switch or something.
